I’ve decided that every blog needs a gimmick. Mine is going to be weird fact Wednesday. Can you out-weird-fact me?
Fact 1: According to a study quoted by the August NZ Readers Digest Magazine (p.14), “…email can drop your IQ by as much as ten points.” Apparently, it has to do with a disorder called “infomania” where “people become addicted to checking their e-mail and text messages…”
Hands up everyone who gets withdrawal symptoms if cut off from the Net?

I saw Mr & Mrs Smith and thought it was fabulous. It had just the right blend of action, comedy, romance and drama to keep me interested all the way through (despite the fact that only one side of my headphones was working and only if I held it tight against my ear). I mean what other movie has lines like, "Are you still alive, honey?" So if you haven't seen it, go to it. You won't regret it. And I promise I haven't been paid to say that...
I also saw three (yes, three) other movies, and they were all good but Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie definitely came out number one.

I was an innocent to all this until yesterday but I typed the word into Google and came up with hits galore. Here's one that links to an article in Wired magazine which explains the new trend.
Now since I'm such a trendsetter, you might imagine that I too may go into the brave new world of vlogs. Ar....no. The idea of looking presentable every single day is just too much to contemplate. I'm at peace with the fact that I'm a writer and as such, I write. But it does bring up an interesting question - will vlogging draw a different kind of author/audience than blogging? What do you prefer?

It's an undoubtedly beautiful place but seriously lacking in its ability to provide meaningful face to face contact with other romance writers (or readers come to think of it). So, while I'm talking a mile a minute with friends I haven't seen for a couple of years in some cases, why don't you tell me something about the places where you live or have lived? I'd love to know who's reading this blog, where. :)
I'll be back Sunday with a conference report so start posting!

And on the writing front, under no circumstances is anyone to tell my editors that I've been lazy for seven days in a row. My fingers are starting to itch from the need to write but what am I to do when certain parties who shall not be named drag me off to shop? Everyone needs a pair of spangly gold sandals don't they?
